The Irish National 3D Outdoor Competition was hosted by Slaney Archers in the beautiful Coolbawn Woods and proved to be a great success, with archers complimenting the layout of the course, its challenging nature and the diversity of the 3D targets.
The weather also cooperated, being sunny and dry for the two-day competition.
Representing CúChulainn Archers were Éamonn Rogers and Neil Keeble.
Rogers, normally a compound archer, had decided to give the longbow discipline a try. This is a completely different style of archery, with no sights or stabiliser and using wooden arrows. However he did very well and came away with a personal best score, the title of National 3D Longbow champion and a gold medal.
Keeble, shooting in the Barebow category, also shot a new personal best score and took the National 3D Barebow champion title and a gold medal. He also put in a qualification score for the 2024 World 3D Championships, so all in all it was a very good weekend for the club.
